Ho, Ho, Ho ... Merry Christmas (part 1)

Well we are a few days post-Christmas so please forgive me. I hope you all had an amazing time with your family/friends/whatever you like to do during the holidays. We had some time off and have been eating (to excess) with another few big main meals planned before New Years Eve.

In order to celebrate the Christmas season, I thought it might be nice to share a couple of our Christmas-themed puzzles. Below is one of our crosswords and I'll follow up in the next few days with a wordsearch and Codeword.

All of these are available in The Ultimate Christmas Activity Collection - available on Amazon now.
